- Brass tube 1/2" with a good dart fit for Elite / Koosh 3rd
Bring a dart with you to test the fit. What you're looking for is K&S brass tubes. It's usually found in hardware stores (ACE; Home Depot and Lowes are DIY stores and cater to larger projects) or hobby shops (Hobby Lobby, Michael's, maybe Joanne's; probably RC Train places but those aren't chains). There are several sizes people use, they all nest. I think 17/32" and 9/16" are the most used; I haven't messed with it and instead use 1/2" CPVC (which you can find at Home Depot or Lowes [in plumbing by the supply pipes], but the stuff is really hit-and-miss. You need to bring a dart to test the fit on each piece since the ID is variable by something like 5%. Way cheaper than brass though; 10 feet [~3 meters] of the stuff is $5 or so).
- Buzzbee Boss (or Tyrant) and 12 round Magazines / refills http://www.buzzbeeto...efill clip.html
- Buzzbee Mini Marshmallow attack ;-)
I'm not sure that these are widely available. I'm seeing offers on Amazon and Ebay, but not in stores. I think I remember seeing my local mega-store clearancing out the Boss/Tyrant. Try Walmart (look in the toy and clearance sections), Kmart, and Toys R Us.
My backup-plan for the blasters / Magazines is ordering them to be delivered to the hotel via amazon.com
Might be your best bet; but they don't all look to be available on Amazon either.
Also I need a replacement belt for my Overlord - a buddy ran his car over mine :-( - I was told to mail a check in US$, which I can't get from my Bank at home. Can someone just walk into a Bank in the US, give them 20$ in cash or by MasterCard and get a check that I can send by mail?
Maybe a traveler's check? I'd try calling Buzz Bee customer service ahead of time on this one. They might take your credit card info that way and you could arrange a better shipment setup. If you mail in the check you're waiting a week (or more) for that to clear, then another week or two for them to ship.
